  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       8 oz Pk. cream cheese, softened
       1 c  Butter
       2 c  Flour
            Apricot preserves or*
            Confectioners sugar
  
   * raspberry or other fruit preserves
   
    These are easy to make and you can use any variety of fruit preserves.
   
    In a large bowl, cut cream cheese and butter into flour. Mix into a smooth
   ball. Chill dough for about 30 minutes.
   
    Preheat oven to 350ø. Roll dough out onto wax paper, about 1/8- 1/4 inch
   thick. Cut into 3-inch squares. Put 1 teaspoon preserves slightly off the
   center of each square. Fold dough over to enclose preserves and form a
   triangle, but don't come quite to the edge with the top flap. Roll dough
   toward the point and smooth and seal edges. Bend in ends of rolled dough to
   give a crescent effect.
   
    Bake at 350ø for 25-30 minutes, or until light brown. Remove and cool on
   wire racks. Roll in confectioners sugar.
   
   Yield: about 2 dozen. Rosa Linaris, Silver Spring, MD
